Instead, it was funny, satirical take on the superhero genre. The film had great laugh out loud moments and an equally amazing soundtrack to boot.

Given the film's victory with both critics and at the box office, a sequel was almost immediately in the cards, and now it seems Marvel has another crowd-pleaser on its hands.

Vol. 2 scopes the life of a dysfunctional family of intergalactic outcasts and their unwitting involvement in saving the universe from almost certain annihilation.
